New Levels of Confidence

by Shun Shifu Kimball Feb 7, 2016 0 Blog, Child safety, Community, Event, Modesto , ,

The kids confidence workshop was a blast!!!! Everyone who participated had amazing growth in their confidence.

Thank you to everyone who helped teach, set up refreshments, and wake up early on a Saturday (parents, you’re all fantastic for being good sports).

I’d like to congratulate everyone who became full time members at our martial arts school today. I’m really excited to see all of you earn your white belts in class next week.

P.S. I really appreciate everyone’s willingness to listen to my bully story…. Yes, I wasn’t born a black belt (contrary to popular belief). Today I witnessed more confidence than I ever had when I was young. Mrs. Kimball and I can’t wait to see all the great things you’ll do with the new levels of self-esteem.

Mr. & Mrs. Kimball

Kid’s Confidence Workshop

by Shun Shifu Kimball Jan 29, 2016 0 Blog, Child safety, Event , , ,


I’ve been teaching children full time for years now and I’ve had the honor of meeting people from all walks of life. During my internship through now I’ve seen thousands of families who have all found great benefits in martial arts.

During this time and the thousands of families I’ve met…..Guess how many actually needed their child to learn how to fight? Two, and one of those two just happened to be me. ( My bully story will have to wait for a different blog post.) I know what you must be thinking, two…..Now way!

The main reason behind the phone calls, messages, and questions I receive boil down to one thing, SELF-ESTEEM. Low self-esteem is the root of most difficulties that children face. This epidemic has led me down the path of teachingĀ character developmentĀ and specializing in children’s martial arts.

I’d like to extend an invitation to our local community for a FREE kid’s confidence workshop, Saturday Feb. 6th. Join us for a martial arts class that’s centered on building confidence.

  • Ages 4-7 10:00 am
  • Ages 8- 13 11:30 am

This is an open event and we welcome everyone to join! Free martial arts patches will be given to the first 40 children who attend this workshop.
